The British artist Evelyn de Morgan (1855-1919) was one of the comparatively few important women painters of the 19th century. She lived in Italy for a while, and was much influenced by Botticelli. She shows the influence of both the Pre-Raphaelites and the Symbolists. She was the niece of the Pre-Raphaelite painter John Roddam Spencer Stanhope.
